Hello. Welcome to the “Unfolding” community..it is a pleasure to share energy with you here!
“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us
are tiny matters compared to
what lives within us.” -Thoreau
What lives within me is: love, peace, joy, beauty, truth, passion, gratitude. This is the overflowing well that All that I create is drawn from. This is the foundation of my life, my essence, my being.
I woke this morning and looked around my boat..a dream come true, full of love (priceless). And then I went outside and took the kayak for a predawn ride around the harbor loop: still harbor waters reflecting the sky, the clouds, the boats, and birds; the sun shining through the clouds as it rose; two huge cranes flying so closely overhead that they almost skimmed the water; ducks accompanying the kayak as it quietly glided over the water: utter peace, bliss, beauty.
I believe that what I focus my energy on grows.. I have been focusing my energy on being love. I made the conscious choice to *live love*…not to merely share it with words or photos or stories, but to *be love* in each and every moment. As an energy worker, I may focus my energy on healing you; as an empath, I may focus my energy on understanding you; as an intuitive, I may focus my energy on guiding you. I made the decision to apply these gifts to my own life as well as to share them externally.
I made the choice to open my heart through fear to lean into discomfort so that I may fully embrace completely new and different in a relationship that is like no other I’ve experienced. Every day, I open my heart to the concept of “showing up” regardless of external circumstances..to allow love to lead..to be love, unconditionally. I Know that what is reflected to me through this relationship are significant lessons that when I choose to process rather than deflect transform into nutrients that are vital to my own heart growth.
I made the choice to simplify my home life and to release routine so that I may love my children through a few transitions in their life. I may not always understand the issues that my children deal with, but I Know the answer is love..always. In simplifying our life and allowing for quality time and transparency, I am making the space for genuine connection. Our home is full of joy, laughter, creativity, comfort, peace. It is our haven, our cocoon, our place to create as well as to rest and just be.
Making this conscious choice to be love has amazing benefits..I have blossomed in ways I couldn’t have imagined; this relationship is a gift that enriches my being, enlivens my spirit; my children are settling into the newness in their individual lives. My heart is full of gratitude at the transformation that takes place when love is applied. There have been what some might label consequences: what I do not focus my energy on wilts…I have been relatively quiet online, I have allowed “routine” to fall to the wayside, there are chores left undone, and a “to-do list” that is so long I cannot imagine doing it.
Embracing love, living love, being love often sets me apart from mainstream society. I truly believe that my life is as magical as I allow it to be: because I remain open to receiving and to Flow, I experience magnificent beyond what many believe is possible; because I open my heart and practice transparency, the connections I make are genuine.. a rare gift. It is my heart whisper that All may experience the peace, the beauty, the joy of genuine, pure, life enriching. What lives within me is: faith and hope, courage and spunk, and the willingness to serve, to share, to model so that you may experience it, too.
What ultimately lives within me is: Freedom.
I recognize that some people fear inner truth; knowing self so well that you know when you are living a life aligned with your internal beliefs (or not). I Feel there is great freedom in Knowing what lives within me. Freedom to be me, in each and every moment. Freedom to release “me” in each and every moment. I do not exert energy on building barriers, or creating masks, or playing a game; instead I have the Freedom to explore World, to experience genuine, to receive love as readily as I share it. I have the Freedom to create in different mediums, to try new and different, to release what no longer fits, to embrace Truth. I have the freedom of movement..in all areas…in all realms.
I reflect this to you today, because you have this freedom too..the moment you open your heart to what lives inside of you, is the moment you are *free*.
